When Gutenberg made the first printing press, it took years for his technology to reach the hands of the masses. The first commercially available 2D printers were released centuries after the original’s inception, but fortunately for you, the wait for residential ready 3D printers wasn’t nearly as long. Putting the power in your paws with their all-in-one Prusa 8” i3 Kit, Maker Farm gives you the materials to build a fully functional 3D printer in the comfort of your own home.
This buy is comes with a .50mm J-Head Nozzle for 3mm filament.
NOTE: THIS KIT DOES NOT COME WITH A POWER SUPPLY OR A GLASS PLATE PRINTING SURFACE
Building off the open source technology started by the self-replicating RepRap, the i3 kit comes with all of the primary parts you need, except a power supply and glass for the build platform. With a Philips screwdriver, crescent wrench, wire strippers, and a soldering iron, you can construct the frame and hook up all of the electronics in only a few hours of assembly. To cover the hot end and heated bed, you’ll need D-sub wire crimpers and kapton tape. Though it may seem daunting, Maker Farm is one of the easiest assembled printers and they provide a thorough text manual as well as instructional YouTube videos to assist you along the way.
After you’re all set-up, just feed in the right filament and you’ll be printing off highly detailed and fully formed plastic models in no time. Perfect for statuettes, product development, or any number of household projects, the Prusa 8” i3 Kit comes with the high quality desired by professionals and the simplicity of use needed by the rest of us. Stop pining after the latest in printing technology and join the extra-dimensional revolution today.
